She should have to buy two seats,I sat next to a big fattie recently at a Manchester Monarchs game and her big fat butt cheeks were spilling out into my seat and I had to move way over to the side of my seat. I was very uncomfortable. Meanwhile she filled her fat face with popcorn and hotdogs, she wasn't there to watch the game she was there to eat.

I agree...this has nothing at all to do with race. I believe that SW should not charge her for 2 seats....but, only if there is an extra availble seat next to her for that flight. Otherwise, she needs to wait for the next flight.
in case you dont know, airlines sell individual seats on a plane, not space. if you want one seat or take up two seats, you buy two tickets. plane and simple.
yeah baby

Most of you are chomping at the bit to insult this woman because of her weight. How many of you finger-pointers would be willing to pay by the pound? That should weed a lot of you out! You can always find someone heavier than you to justify your own faults. I'd bet a lot of you anonymous internet bullies weigh over 200, I think you should pay twice as much as the 100 lb woman in front of you, see how you like them apples!
That would be the fairest way to deal with cowards like some of you.

when this suit falls she may want to sue the grocery store for selling her to much food or Mickey D for supper sizing stuff and selling it to her.

she should look in the full length mirror !

air lines should make all the fat people sit in one row so they can see how they disrupt the normal sized passengers trying to sit next to them.

what every happen to personal responsibility.

the airline should sue her for being fat not having a mirror to see what a fat moron she is and taking up too much space in a modern air liner.

Get a mirror and a diet and a life you fat moron.

All boils down to personal accountability. She wants to be "obese" , that's her choice. She has a medical condition where she can't control her weight, she is going to have to make arrangements that will accommodate her and her size. If she is just heavy because she chooses to, she should be prepared to face the consequences that go with it. She should be held accountable and pay for the 2 seats so everyone is comfortable. Only in America can we sue because we are fat.
